Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My mum lost her partner (my dad) 3 years ago of cancer after 18 years of being together. Since then we have been alone in her 3 bedroom house which she's owned for 30 years and trying to make it feel like home without him.
On Friday night 2nd March, whilst we were out a water pipe burst in our attic and ran constantly for around 6 hours straight before my mum got home, opened our front door and had water flood over her feet.. The water has soacked everything and we are going to be without a home for 6months+ whilst the council fix it all.
The house is in unliviable conditions and my mum is heartbroken and feels so alone..
We have been "sofa surfing" and my mum has cried herself to sleep every night.. she reached out for help in our local community and no one was willing to help... She feels so unwanted.
5 kids and 30 years worth of things are ruined and I'm just trying to prove people do care, she isn't alone and that things will get better.

People don't understand how heart breaking this situation is. She's lost all her personal belongings because of this flood.

About the fundraiser
I'm Vicky cooper her 16 year old daughter. I don't know how else to make my mum smile. I need to prove strangers do care about her, eventhough in some people's eyes this doesn't seem bad. It's heart breaking.
